SUPERB early 1960s backyard barbecue (at roughly 0:24:00), CU hamburgers cooking on the grill. Early 1960s family eating hamburgers outdoors in their backyard. Great shot (at 0:25:08) of man wearing chef's hat and apron ("Genius At Work") putting thick, juicy steaks on the barbecue grill. For barbecue shots, you couldn't do better than this film!!

This engaging Kodachrome drama (formatted for television broadcast) from the Union Pacific ostensibly deals with safety at railroad grade crossings, but it's also about much more: youth's feeling of invulnerability; the highway patrolman as an authority figure; the look of the rural and urban West in the late 1950s; the urge to speed through a sparsely populated agricultural landscape; and the train's role as farmer's servant and potential killer. This film was made just five years after The...

Panama-Pacific International Exposition - WOW (Industrial Workers of the World) Parade / marching units of women / fancy marching / head of organization on horse / CU of large group / parade. NOTE: This is an extremely early women's labor union march! It can also pass easily for "Women's Suffrage" as well, with their draped sashes and uniformly white dresses. Curiously, and to great effect, they march in drill formations as well as the standard march down a city street.
